The new Reviewer’s Guide for Cloud-Based VMware Workspace ONE is now available to download. Use this Reviewer’s Guide to learn about VMware Workspace ONE architecture and components, and familiarize yourself with its features using the practical exercises.

Mobility is critical for today’s workforce. Work hours are no longer restricted to the traditional nine-to-five schedule. More organizations support remote and flexible working hours. Users require access to their applications, at any time, from any device. The challenge for IT is how to provide application access to corporate or personal devices and still maintain data security.

Workspace ONE rises to this challenge by combining identity and mobility management to provide simple yet secure access to applications. Workspace ONE consists of VMware Identity Manager, VMware AirWatch Enterprise Mobility Management service, and Workspace ONE mobile applications for Android, iOS, and Windows 10.

Benefits include one-touch single sign-on (SSO), conditional access with device compliance, and the choice to use any device—personal or corporate-owned.

The following diagram details Workspace ONE components and features.

Workspace ONE components and features

Salesforce1 is a mobile business application used by many organizations. The practical exercises in this guide include a section on integrating VMware Identity Manager and Salesforce1, and configuring SSO for Salesforce1.

Adaptive management is another feature demonstrated in the exercises. Using the Workspace ONE mobile application, users can select the applications they want to install. If an application requires only a basic level of security, users are not required to enroll their device into VMware AirWatch Mobile Device Management. Applications that require a higher level of security are indicated with a lock icon. When the user tries to download an application with a lock icon, the enrollment process is triggered.

The exercises include:

  • Installing and configuring AirWatch Cloud Connector
  • Configuring SAML integration between VMware Identity Manager and Salesforce
  • Integrating VMware AirWatch and VMware Identity Manager
  • Configuring VMware Identity Manager access policies
  • Creating and assigning a VMware AirWatch device profile
  • Enrolling an iOS device in VMware AirWatch
  • Accessing the application catalog from the Workspace ONE mobile application
